Amid heat, tens of thousands visit Dayton Air Show

DAYTON, OH (AP) -

Hot weather hasn't deterred tens of thousands of spectators from turning out for the first day of this year's Dayton Air Show in western Ohio.

The Dayton Daily News reports the crowd was estimated at more than 30,000 people by lunchtime Saturday at the Dayton International Airport. Organizers 70,000 to 80,000 people to attend the weekend event, which kicked off Saturday with a late-morning show by the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team.

The National Weather Service said temperatures were expected to reach into the low 90s Saturday, and air show organizers planned extra precautions because of the heat. They said they'd have an emergency responder team available and several tents equipped to handle people with heat exhaustion.
